president obama to address the united nations general assembly. he is about to take the podium right now. this is after the iranian president addressed at the un yesterday calling... we're expecting the president to have harsh words. let's listen and. >> fellow delegates, ladies and gentlemen. i would like to begin today by telling you about an american named chris stevenson. chris was born in a town called the grass valley california the son of a lawyer and a musician. as the unman chris joined the peace corps and taught english in morocco.
7:21am
he came to love and respect the people of middle africa and the northeast. he kept that commitment throughout his life. as a diplomat he worked from egypt to syria, from saudi arabia to libya. he was known for walking the streets where he worked. tasting the local food, meeting as many people as he could. speaking arabic and listening with a broad smile. chris went to benghazi in the early days of the libyan revolution riding on a cargo ship. as america's representative he held bolivian people as they cope with violent conflict, care for the wounded, and crafted a vision for the future in which the rights of all libyans would be respected. after the revolution he supported the
7:22am
birth of a new democracy as libyans held elections, and build institutions, and began to move forward after decades of dictatorship. chris stevens love his work. he took pride in the country he served and he saw the dignity and the people he met. two weeks ago he traveled to benghazi to establish plans for a neutral center as well as a hospital. that's what america's compound came under attack along with three of his colleagues chris was killed in a city that he helped to save. he was 52 years old. i tell you this story because chris stevens and body the best of america. like his fellow foreign service officers he build bridges across oceans and cultures. he was deeply
7:23am
invested in the national cooperation that the united nations represents. he acted with humility but also stood up for a set of principles. a belief that individuals should be free to determine their own destiny. littered with liberty, dignity, justice, as well as opportunity. the attacks on the civilians in benghazi where attacks on america. we are grateful for the assistance we receive from libyan government as well as the libyan people. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bring them to justice. i also appreciate that in recent days the leaders of other countries in the region, including egypt, and tunisia, and yemen have taken steps to a...
7:24am
understand the attacks of the last two weeks are not simply an assault on america. there also an assault on the very ideals upon which the united nations was founded. the notion that people can resolve their differences peacefully. that diplomacy can take the place of war. that an independent world all of us have a stake in working towards greater opportunity and security forces since. if we're serious about of holding these ideas it will not be enough to put more guards in front of an embassy or to put out statements of regret and wait for the outrage to pass. if we're serious about these ideas we must speak honestly about the deeper causes of the crisis. we
7:25am
face a choice between the forces that would drive us apart, and the hopes that we hold in common. today we must reaffirm that our future will be determined by people like chris stevens and not by his killers. today we must declare that this violence and intolerance has no place among our united nations. it has been less than two years since the vendor in tunisia set himself on fire to protest the oppressed of corruption as come country. and a spark that became known as the arabs praying. since then the world as been captivated by the transformation that has taken place. the united states has supported the forces of change. we were inspired by the tunisian protests that toppled dictator because we recognize our own beliefs and the aspiration of men
7:26am
and women that took to the streets. we insisted on changing egypt because our support for democracy suspect was on the side of the people. we support his transition of leadership in yemen because the people were no longer being served by a corrupt status quo. we intervened in libya alongside a broad coalition with the mandate of the united nations security council council because we have the ability to stop the slaughter of innocents and because we believe the aspirations of the people were more powerful than the tyrant. as we meet here we again declare that the real shame of bosch are lsi must come to an end so that the suffering of the syrian people can come to an end and a new beginning can begin. we have taken these positions because we believe freedom and self- determination are not unique
7:27am
to one culture. this are simply not american these are not simply american values. they are universal values. even though there will be accused transitions to come i'm convinced that a goal to met government for the people by the people is more likely to bring about this stability prosperity and opportunity that serve as a basis for peace in the world. remember this is a season of progress. for the first time in decades that but for leaders in elections that were credible competitive and fair. this democratic city has not been restricted to only our world. in the past year we've seen peaceful transitions of power and now a synagogue and a new president and somalia. in burma the president has
7:28am
freed political prisoners. the dissident has been elected to parliament. people look forward to for for more reform. around the globe people making their voices heard. the right to determine their future. and yet the turmoil of recent weeks reminds us that the path of to democracy does not end with the casting of a ballot. nelson mandela won said, to be free is not merely to cast off once change but to the lives and a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others. true democracy demands that citizens cannot be thrown in jail for what they believe. businesses can be open without paying a bribe. it depends on the
7:29am
freedom of split citizens to speak their minds and assemble without for freer. under the rule of law and the process they dared take guarantees the rights of all people. in other words true democracy real freedom is hard work. those in power have to resist the temptation to crack down on dissidents. in hard economic times countries must be tempted must from perceived enemies at home and abroad rather than focusing on the painstaking work that must be performed. where there were always being those average of human progress. dictators to cling to power corrupt interest that depend upon the status quo and extremist who fan the flames of hate and division. from northern ireland to south asia from africa to the americas from the balkans to
7:30am
the pacific we have written this convulsions that the company transitions to the new political order. a time the complex are ryan's off conflicts are... often they from the difficulties of reconciling tradition and face with a diversity and interdependence of the modern world. in every country there are those who find different religious beliefs threatening and every country culture those who love freedom must ask themselves how much they're willing to tolerate freedom for others. that is what we saw play out in the last two weeks. it was a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout moslem world. i have made it clear that the united states government had nothing to do with this video. i believe
7:31am
its message must be rejected by all respect our common humanity. it is an insult not only to muslims but to america as well. for as a city outside these walls makes clear we are a country that has welcomed people of every race and every faith. we are home to muslims worship across our country. we not only respect the freedom of religion we have lost protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. we understand why people take offenses video because millions of our citizens are among them. i know that there's some that ask why don't we just banned such a video? the answer is enshrined in our laws. the park constitution protects the right to free speech. here in the united states
7:32am
like me the majority of americans are christians and we cannot ban blasphemy against our most sacred beliefs. as president of our country and commander-in- chief of our military i accept that people are gonna call me awful things everyday. and i will always defend their right to do so. ! americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the rights of all people to express their views. even news that we profoundly disagree with. we cannot do so because we support hateful speech but because our founders understood that without such protections the capacity of each individual to express their own views and practice their own faith may be threatened. we do so
7:33am
because endeavor society efforts to restrict speech and can quickly become a tool to silence critics and oppressed minorities. we do so because given the power of faith in our lives and a passion that religious differences differences can and plight the strongest weapon against hateful speech is not repression it is more speech. the voices of tolerance that rally against the voices of blasphemy and bigotry. i know that not all countries in this body share this particular understanding of the protection of free speech. we recognize that. but in 2012 at a time when anyone with a cell phone can spread offensive views are around the world with a click of a button, the notion that we can control the flow of information is obsolete. the question then
7:34am
is how we respond? on this we must agree, there isthat justifies-violence! there are no words that excuse the killing of innocents. there is no video that justifies an attack on an embassy. there is no slander that provides an excuse for people burn a restaurant and 11 on or destroyed a school in tunis or cause death and destruction of pakistan. in this modern world with modern technologies for us to respond in that way the hateful speech and powers any individual who engages in such speech to create chaos around world. we empower the worst of us. if
7:35am
that's how we're respond. more broadly the events of the last two weeks also speak to the need for all of us to honestly address the tensions between the west and the arab world that is moving towards democracy. let me be clear we cannot solve every problem in the world the united states has not and will not seek to dictate the outcome of democratic transitions abroad. we do not expect other nations to agree with us on every issue. nor do we assume that the violence of the past weeks or the hateful speech by some individuals represent the views of the overwhelming majority majority of muslims. however i do believe that it is the obligation of all ages and all countries to speak out forcefully against violence and extremism. it is time to
7:36am
marginalize those who even when not directly resorting to violence use hatred of america or the west or israel as the central organizing principle of politics. for that only gives cover and sometimes makes an excuse for those who do resort to violence. that brand of politics one that pits east against west and south against north muslims against christians and hindu and jews can deliver on the promise of freedom. to the use it only offers false hope. burning an american flag does nothing to revive a child and education. smashing a part of a restaurant does not fill an empty stomach.
7:37am
attacking an embassy will not create a single job. that brand of politics only makes it harder to achieve what we must do together. educating our children in creating the opportunities that they deserve, protecting their human rights and it extending democracies progress. i understand america will never retreat from the world will bring justice to those who harm our citizens and our friends and we will stand with our allies. >> we have listened to present a bomb was addressed to the as general assembly. he is saying the future will be determined by the life of chris stevens. we'll follow more of the president's address and follow up this morning as of news continues.

we are now tracking 724 as a high hotspot. it's a combination of factors the most recent of which was a westbound 24 crash at broadway. it's in the center divider and may actually be cleared from the roadway but is jammed up now. you're looking at about a 24 minute drive time about lafayette. the ride for the south bay expected heavier than usual traffic on highway interstate 280.
